Hotel Casa Del Mar – Spa in the city by the sea

August 30, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 8.31.58 AM

I’ve always loved Hotel Casa Del Mar for the simple reason – it’s a sexy, chic, classic hotel on the Santa Monica beach that makes me feel like I’m a million miles away, in less than a 20 minute drive my home in Hollywood. I’ve met girlfriends for cocktails, had blind dates, a romantic brunch with my boyfriend, spent a day writing by the shore. It’s a gift I give to myself a couple of times a year.

But who knew they had a lovely top notch spa? I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to figure that out (#duh!).

Sea Wellness Spa - Reception 05

Located literally steps from the beach in Santa Monica, the spa offers some exciting innovative ways to de-stress after life in the big city or a day in the sun.
At the hotel’s Sea Wellness Spa, I recently experienced the 90 minute Diamond Magnetic Body Ritual—a luxurious treatment that purifies the body and mind, helping eliminate the effects of the electromagnetic pollution caused by the stress of our daily lives. The treatment begins with a balancing of chakras with gems, followed by a luminous mud with diamond dust applied to the body. Finally, guests are treated to a massage using magnetic tools. The ritual results in increased energy and stress relief. Oh yes, times ten please!
Additionally offered at the sister property Shutters on The Beach, the hotel is offering a mindfulness-inspired wellness package available for corporate and leisure groups, designed to help guests practice a mindful lifestyle and reduce stress. The hotel has partnered with renowned wellness expert John Sahakian to offer AIRR (Automatic Integrative Relaxation Response), private sessions with instruction on the principles of body, environment, and mind which include practicing a range of relaxation methods and breathing exercises taught by a local expert. The sessions can be tailored to meet the specific needs of groups, whether it’s for an all-day company retreat, a brief session to kick off a business meeting, or a way for bachelorette parties to decompress and bond and can incorporate other amenities such as yoga on the beach.

Sea Wellness Spa - Sitting Area 01

Looking for a getaway in town? Want to feel like you’re a vacation for a few years. Trust me, book a day at the spa, enjoy the ocean breeze, relax, repeat. Ahhh…!

Summer Dry Skin Be Gone with Fleur’s Nutri-Enhancing Oil

August 27, 2015


I’ve been going nuts with Fleur’s Nutri-Enhancing Oil for intensive après-shave and shower smoothness. Not to mention the sexy iridescent look it casts.

I call this next-level dry oil specifically designed to nourish and smooth the body with the resurfacing, anti-oxidant power of pomegranate oil. Three more botanical oils provide extra comfort and care: sesame oil prevents dryness and protects the skin from free-radicals, macadamia nut oil soothes the skin and buriti fruit oil softens the skin and imparts a glowing, golden hue. Its elegant pomegranate-red spray bottle casts a delicate veil over the body and gently perfumes the skin with a bright, sparkling scent of floral and citrus. Lightweight and quickly absorbed by the skin, it leaves a satin-soft finish with no sticky or greasy feeling.
Fleur’s Nutri-Enhancing Oil – BODY is available for purchase in select spas in the United States and at
